"The Courage to Remember" Traveling Holocaust Exhibit on View Oct. 8-16

The Museum of Tolerance’s "The Courage to Remember" traveling Holocaust exhibit, featuring 200 original photos and a 40-panel visual narrative of the Holocaust, will be on view at Pomona College (Bridges Auditorium, 450 N. College Way, Claremont) from Tuesday, Oct. 8, through Wednesday, Oct. 16. "The Courage to Remember" exhibit is an educational series that has circled the globe since 1988 as both a tribute in honor of the millions of lives lost to the horrors of the Holocaust and a warning that the root causes remain.

“We want people to learn about what happened and never forget,” says Ted Gover, executive director of Foundation for California, which supports the exhibit. “We hope one of the lessons we can learn from the Holocaust is tolerance and speaking out when other groups are being persecuted. Simon Wiesenthal says, ‘Hope lives when people remember.’”

The exhibit is free and open to the public from 10 a.m.-4 p.m., excluding Saturday and Sunday. All are welcome to attend the opening ceremony on Monday, Oct. 7, at 4 p.m., where local officials, representatives from the Simon Wiesenthal Center, and Holocaust survivor Elane Geller will speak.

Free parking is available in the South Campus Parking Structure, located at First St. and Columbia Ave.
